    Arapaio, Clinton, and Bloomberg are listed right beside Brezhnev and Bin Laden. Self refuting.

    @Andrew

    Did you actually read WHY they were listed?

    I know perfectly well why they are listed. And I think Bloomberg has been totally weird with his policies. And I didn`t like it when the cafeteria I used to eat at stopped stocking itself with its largest size drink (21oz). But I think it`s even weirder to list him as numero uno and Bin Laden at 4 and Brezhnev at 5 and Castro at 6. They`re really not comparable. As much as Bloomberg`s "caretaker" light-authoritarian policies are bad, it`s just dumb to list them next to these actual dictators and international terrorists. I`ve lived under Bloomberg`s rule and it was fine. I managed.

    And I know they were listed alphabetically, which is why he appears so high up, but it`s just quite....lame to put Bloomberg in the same list as Communist dictators. You don`t know real oppression, then.

    The point is that everyone on this list has infringed upon human liberties in their own way, some MORE SO than others.

    Of course it does seem weird as to why they`d have a fictional character in this one.

    Sherriff Joe Arpaio? WHAT A JOKE! To compare the "tent prisons" with Pol Pot`s TORTURE SCHOOLS is... not even funny. AND those same tents were good enough for US GIs in the desert? They`re good enough for prisoners too.

    Dianne Feinstein: Good to see her name here. She`s been at it for decades!

    Henry Kissinger: A certified War Criminal and Human Rights Violator, he deserves to be on the list!

    Naomi Klein? Loki? Ok, this list just went from "dull" to "freaking stupid"...

    Over and OUT! Sorry @Cajun it`s a 1.0...

    Not sure why everyone is complaining...

    If the list were called "Enemies of Freedom Grouped by the Level of Total Damage Done" then yes, the list sucks. Thankfully, the list is simply called "45 Enemies of Freedom" and goes on to provide a list - with verifiable examples - of 45 people who have attacked at least one manner of freedom.

    Seems like the article has a perfect title to describe the contents.

    I don`t see how Jenny McCarthy fits in an anti freedom list. How has she limited freedom?
